Brett Favre joins Twitter, hilarity ensues
The day we have all waited for is here, my friends -- Brett Favre is on Twitter.
Over a year removed from throwing his final NFL interception, the Wrangler-wearing gunslinger from Mississippi has finally found time to put down the camera phone and join the Twitter-sphere. And as you'd imagine, as news of no. 4's new account circulated, a flurry of hilarious tweets ensued.
Here's a look at some of the funniest takes offered up in response to the Twitter debut of Hattiesburg's Favorite Son.
Here's the tweet that started it all:
Hello friends, family, and fans. This is my official account I finally found the time to join twitter.

And here are some of the best responses:
